A curated collection of inspired appointments …live well.
BonVivant HOME is home to Robin Rountree’s carefully curated, thoughtfully restored and cleverly reinvented collection of vintage pieces. A licensed interior designer and decorative painter, Robin sold her successful Chicago commercial architectural firm in 1996 and moved to Old Lyme, Connecticut. There she found herself confronted with a very empty, very old, vintage home. Faced with the task of furnishing rooms for her three young girls in addition to renovating her circa 1831 home, she knew there had to be a way to stylishly furnish her home without breaking the bank. And the rest is history.
Designing furniture, carpets, lighting and spaces was part of her daily routine as principal of her firm. It was easy for her to apply her expertise to her home using different raw materials, vintage furniture, accessories and lighting. Of course she had to answer to the most demanding of clients, her 2, 6 and 9 year old girls. Over the years she has cultivated her resources and honed her technique transforming “old” pieces of furniture and lighting fixtures into exquistely painted and restyled functional works of art.
Robin founded BonVivant HOME in 2010 as home to her interior design business as well as her collection of unique furnishings and fixtures. A pervasive neutral palette as the backbone of her designs, allows a blend of vintage, modern and new furnishings to create an easy-going, approachable aesthetic. Her talented team can help you find, refinish or create the details to make your home uniquely yours.
